Did you try the deployJava.js from http://java.com/js/deployJava.js? As far as I know, the fixed version is in the jdk8/deploy/deploy repo and is live in the above url, but not in the jdk8/jdk8/deploy repo.

You need to get release team approval before pushing the fixes. This one was pushed before we (release team) had approved it.

SQE-OK to get this issue fixed for jdk8
2013-12-03

request to add this fix for jdk8: This is not tied to any release. It's a live file on Java.com : http://java.com/js/deployJava.js. We need to keep the live copy and the copy in our repo in sync.
